**Ranked #1 and #2 in San Diego County by the Regional Continuum of Care Council, Crisis House has served as a helping hand to those in need since 1970.

Today we continue to strengthen the lives of more than 5,000 people,  connecting them to 18,000 services annually, thanks to our generous donors.


We solve homelessness for 99% of the families and individuals who graduate from our housing programs and we prevent thousands from experiencing homelessness each year. We keep people safe in our Journey Programs serving women and children fleeing from domestic violence.
